The atmosphere can be competitive and a little intimidating. But as long as you do some research on the school, such as classes, teachers, and clubs, and you know which studying methods work for you, you're going to do well.

Monta Vista is a school I would come back to, as I know what to expect from it. I am constantly driven and am able to push through the stressful environment because of the light at the end of the tunnel: the ubiquitous statement that MVHS readily prepares its students for college, that it is a school equivalent in rigor to most universities. My experience at Monta Vista has harvested many different memories, most of them unforgettable. One of the first memories I have is my first rally. MVHS has a reputation of being very spirited, arguably the most spirited in the district. As a timid freshman, the loud atmosphere of the "Welcome Back" rally filled me with both excitement and fear. I felt as if the upperclassmen would look down on the underclassmen, especially the new freshmen. And I was in the category of "new freshmen". But to my surprise and relief, the school was united through its spirit, not split or ranked by class. Another unforgettable experience stemmed from my AP Chemistry class. MVHS is a school of many opportunities, and through the AP Chemistry class, I was given the opportunity to present at the Tech Museum on a topic regarding the book-turned-movie, The Martian.
